Hello

I want to make a sample of a typical RDF application.

Motivation:
I want to show RDF's potential to my developer colleagues. To this end, I though it nice to treat some data that they particuliarly like. I thought of a sound collection in a well-known format derived
from mpeg :-) that we have on our intranet.
So I'll write a RDF file with some Dublin Core properties, et others such as style, epoch, duration, etc, about our basic resources, the sounds. There would be also other RDF resources giving personal
judgements about the "sounds".

Basic functionalities:
   queries on properties' values;
   given a basic resource, get its properties list;
   make the union (in the set theory sense) of several RDF statement sets; in our case union between the main RDF resource giving "objective" facts, and the other RDF resources giving personal
   judgements

Other functionalities:
   drag'n drop from query result to a play list

Implementation:
I have several bricks to build this, but I'm not shure what are the quickest.
   SiRPAC, SiRLI, and DATAX Java libraries for RDF
   Dan Brickley's RDF Query in Javascript demo (http://www.w3.org/1999/11/11-WWWProposal/rdfqdemo.html)
   xparse , XML parser writen in Javascript (http://www.jeremie.com/). Unfortunately there is no DOM API, but it wouldn't be difficult to add one.
   IBM's lotusxsl Java library implementing XSLT, working as an applet

Shure some of you have done something approaching ...

JM
